From artfully arranged professional pics to candid snaps of epic vegan cafe interiors - these are the local Instagram accounts we follow when we want some inspiration of the meat-free kind. 

1. Avant Garde Vegan

Gaz Oakley started his account on Instagram back in February 2016, and since then, the 25 year old has amassed hundreds of thousands of followers; his impressive vegan re-imaginings of comfort and junk food classics have even been made into a cookery book which came out earlier this year. 

Follow @avantgardevegan to see just how fresh, vibrant and exciting vegan food can be. 

2. Wild Thing Cardiff

Follow this Cardiff account for everyday snaps of vibrant, healthy vegan food from restaurants and cafes around Cardiff - and also, to find out when the plant based brunch cafe of the same name will be opening in the city. 

Watch this space!

3. Vegging It

Freelance copy-writer, cookbook writer and vegan lifestyle advocate Sarah Philpott (aka @Veggingit) shares snaps from her beautiful recipe book, as well as candid shots of her comforting and quick mid-week meals. 

This feed makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 

4. Mikey Bell

Mikey's pictures always make us hungry. Follow him over at @immikeybell for loads of meat-free recipe inspiration; as an added bonus, following Mikey means you also get to see pictures of his gorgeous dog, Waffle.

Rumour has it that Mikey also has a free recipe e-book on the way... hit follow now!

5. Blanche Bakery

We had to include Blanche in this list, because they run THE most instagrammable dairy-free, meat-free cafe in the city. 

From the living wall with neon signage to the all-white aesthetic, the only thing better looking than the interiors in this place are the 'chickun mayo' vegan toasties, donuts and cupcakes they serve.
